Does anyone have any suggestions for a good acoustic Dead set or show to download?

In 1994, Phil played a benefit for the Music Program at his high school in Berkeley. The show was all acoustic (even Phil played a large guitar-like acoustic bass), and featured all the members from the dead except the drummers.

Check it out!

I always hit the jackpot with the series of warfield shows in 1980. However, the boys did play an acoustic set at a recreation center for disabled children 12-06-80. It's pretty good.

check it out.

Thanks for all the suggestions. The 1970 shows are exactly what I was looking for.

The 1980 sets, as mentioned, are sweet and often sound remarkable. However the 1970 acoustic sets have a more down-home feel. Try some of these:

Fillmore East: 2.13 & 2.14 Late shows (Bear's Choice)
Captiol Theater, Portchester: 3.21
Fillmore East: 5.15
Fillmore West: 6.6 & 6.7
Capitol Theater (again): 6.24
Golden Hall, San Diego: 8.5
Fillmore East: 9.20
Captol Theater (one more time): 11.8

Garcia/Grisman is by far the best acoustic Dead.

8-18-70 is a great for historical value alone. it's got the first ever truckin, ripple, brokedown palace, and operator. the sound isnt perfect, but i like it, it gives it a homey type feel

Agree with the 10-13-80 recommendation. There's a fantastic instrumental version of Heaven Help The Fool. Pick what you want from that and fill in with 10-04 (Rosalie McFall/Dark Hollow), 10-07 (Iko Iko!), 10-06 (Cassidy, China Doll, On The Road Again) and 10-09 (Ain't No Lie> Ripple).

I also would recommend the 05-15-70 set mentioned before. The sound quality is choice and there are some rare tunes in there too.
